End Dismemberment Abortion Petition Drive

Date Posted:  10/13/2019

In May 2019, both the MI House and MI Senate passed a bill to ban, in Michigan, the Dismemberment Abortion Procedure - a heinous and barbaric procedure that is performed on a live unborn baby after 13 weeks gestation.  Over 1,900 were performed in Michigan in 2018. Michigan's Gov. Whitmer promised to veto the ban.

Right to Life of Michigan, other prolife organizations and all of the Bishops across the state have joined to launch a citizens' petition drive to secure 400,000 signatures of registered voters in the state of Michigan that will circumvent a promised veto by the governor.

At the Friday, Oct. 18 West Catholic/Catholic Central football game, volunteers will be offering an opportunity for registered voters to sign a petition. Your support for this will be greatly appreciated.
